Description & Features

This 192-page book increases vocabulary, stimulates imagination, and boosts standards-based language arts skills. Each of the lessons teaches PSAT and/or SAT vocabulary words, which are made up of dynamic, real-life words students may encounter while reading or use in their writing.

Each lesson contains definitions, pronunciation keys, parts of speech, and alternate choices for each word made up of synonyms, idioms, and/or phrases. There are several activities, including a story involving students in a classroom setting.

Students complete a variety of exercises requiring critical reading and writing skills to contextualize the words. The exercises deliberately use other forms of the words as different parts of speech, so that students learn to recognize these forms as variations of the original words— further expanding their vocabulary and enabling them to use the words in more contexts. The correct spelling of vocabulary words are emphasized with the jumble activity that asks students to unscramble the word before writing the correct spelling.

Whether used in the traditional classroom, as a homeschooling resource, or for independent study, Vocabulary Virtuoso is a highly effective and fun vocabulary resource!

PSAT-SAT Book 2 — 180 Vocabulary Words and These Concepts:
ancient Greek history, ancient Greek drama, Commedia dell’ Arte, mythological allusions in Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s London, Renaissance artists, epistolary writing, historical fiction, U.S. musical history, types of literary conflict

Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"We are so thrilled that there is a new book in the Vocabulary Virtuoso series. We have used the first book for several years with middle school students, alternating it with Wordly Wise. Our students always want MORE Vocabulary Virtuoso, and now we can give them an advanced version in their 8th and 9th grade years. Thank you for creating such a powerful (and fun) language tool.
